How to delete prior visited websites

When I check the connection settings on a website (lock icon left to the address bar) and go to more information I can see how many times I have visited this website. I already deleted my entire history and all the data but I still can see how many times I have visited different websites in the past. Where is this stored and how to delete this information?

The problem is it will show suggestions in the address bar. There is a setting to to remove such suggestions but I only want to remove some results. Why doesn't this part of the "history" gets deleted?

I am using FF 97.0.1 Win 10

Firefox may have a table of stats for a server, even after removing the individual URLs on that server. To more thoroughly flush data for that server you can try this method (from the "Clear all items for a single site" section of Remove websites from the address bar suggestions):

(1) Create at least one history entry by visiting a site on the server

(2) Open the Library window to the history list (Ctrl+Shift+H or Show All History)

(3) In the small search box at the upper right, enter enough of the site address to isolate it from other sites -- you should see only the one site listed in the results below

(4) Right-click a history entry > Forget About This Site

This purge runs in the background, so it might take a minute.

Any improvement?

Thank you very much this worked. Weird that this doesn't get removed at deleting the data in the settings. But yeah at least I have a solution.
